NAND Flash Architectures - What Comes After 2D SLC NAND Flash?

  Knowledge

2D SLC NAND is currently still the reigning champion when it comes to interchangeable storage media. But the 43nm generation will soon be discontinued, and smaller 24nm structures will suffer the same fate in the medium term, so developers should start looking at possible alternatives.

Lidar for autonomous driving - How science fiction becomes science reality

  Knowledge

It is the dream of many to be brought from A to B without any effort on their part whatsoever – a dream that is embodied in Knight Rider’s K.I.T.T. or the vehicles in “The Fifth Element”. Modern cars are increasingly approaching these visions of the future, and various sensor technologies play one of the most important roles here. One of the most promising of these is lidar.

High-Current inductors for automotive electronics - Small, yet powerful

  Knowledge

New switching transistors, for example based on gallium nitride (GaN), increase the operating frequency of switched-mode power supply units, enabling the use of smaller capacitors and inductors. Inductors using high-tech core materials also help achieve high circuit efficiency.
